And it’s WAYNE GRETZKY!!! Just kidding.. it’s Jack Michaels:
The Edmonton Oilers today announced that Jack Michaels has been named to the position of radio play-by-play voice of the Edmonton Oilers. Michaels will partner with host and colour commentator Bob Stauffer in delivering all Oilers games via the Oilers Radio Network and flagship station 630 CHED.
Michaels, a veteran of over 800 hockey broadcasts, joins the Oilers after eight seasons as the radio and television voice of the ECHL’s Alaska Aces. While with the Aces, Michaels was honoured as the ECHL Broadcaster of the Year in 2004 and was selected by the ECHL to broadcast their annual All Star Game on five separate occasions.
I’ve never heard of the guy, but welcome aboard Jack. You have some pretty big shoes to fill.
